SkyDawg and bluedevil, thanks for the posts, nice to see them again and together. During this time my memories and thoughts swirl like a dust devil rising to the sky.

This is up on Patti Smith's site.

JEROME JOHN GARCIA
Jerry
August 1, 1942 - August 9, 1995

It is said Jerry died smiling in his sleep. Where did he go? Far beyond the land of Dead encampments, of fellow travelers joining a wandering carnival skirting the afterlife. Deep within his sleeping cells perhaps he reentered the atmosphere of his boyhood. Crouching in knee pants scraping the sidewalks with colored chalks. Lifting his ear to the sound of birds chirping his future note by note.

We are Jerry's future. We lift our ear to his music. And we continue to live, smiling ourselves.

Gotta love Patti!

She and Hunter both appear in One Fast Move or I'm Gone:Kerouac's Big Sur.

Shameless plug, yet again, for event I coordinated for next weekend:

Let us know how that goes. I'm there in spirit. I got the DVD and CD the other day but haven't had the time to watch or listen yet. Can't stop thinking about Big Sur right now.
I think my times there were more fun than Kerouacs. Like I wasn't going through DTs and terror and depression.

Agreed. Will do.
